Best no doubt, although Rooney is on his way and Cantona was stunning to watch

George Best by far and Duncan Edwards could've been in the same class had his life not ended prematurely.

Rooney is on his way...... :wth:

What are you smoking Andrew?

Best arrived when we were the top team in the world. For sheer effect it has to be Cantona, he revived the club in the 1990s. We owe most of our success to him.

Puma , you weren't the best team in England when Best first started playing but within a few years you were the best in Europe, something Cantona never achieved.

anyway it's ridiculous, Cantona was great but he didn't have the X factor of Best who utterly destroyes teams on his own.

Yep, I still watch the video of Best takin the piss of 3 defenders 4 times in a row:D, and then making some defender look like a fool by playing a 1-2 with the corner post:)

there was more to it than that. The league back in the 60s was more or less equal to anything going on in the continent, and as such there wasn't such a divide to summount as there was when the ban was lifted and we were back in European competition. Best was brilliant, no question, one of the best 3 of all time, but Cantona was pretty bloody good too. In the early 90s, we were off the pace big style to the Spanish and Italian game, and we couldn't play our full team. If we had been able to play our full team, I do believe that Cantona would have lifted the European cup and would have been rightly regarded as one of the best of all time, which he is anyway to United fans.
